NEXT EVENTS

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.

Just wanted to say how sorry I am for the date change for the banquet and for such short notice.

We received the confirmation notice for the new date from the Charles Mack Citizen Center today.  The new date is January 24, 2015.  Location and times remain the same.  Doors open at 6:00 PM and dinner will follow at seven.  This is a Saturday night so it should be a little easier for everyone to get there without having to rush after the end of a busy work day.  I am looking forward to seeing everyone soon.

I also want to say thank you one more time for all your hard work and support of the first season for the series.  The new schedule is coming together nicely and now that there are confirmed dates for the NASCAR tour, I can finalize our schedule.  Everything should be confirmed by Tuesday after Christmas.

Thanks again!  See you at the banquet.

NASCAR Night Of Champions Honors Seven Titlist

Top Performers Of 2014 Celebrated At NASCAR Hall Of Fame

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Dec. 13, 2014)  — The culmination and coronation of a season-long – and career-defining – road to NASCAR glory came Saturday night for seven drivers.

Abraham Calderón summed it up the best on stage at the NASCAR Touring Series Night of Champions.

“This championship was a dream a few years ago,” said the 26-year-old Monterrey, Mexico driver as he accepted the NASCAR Mexico Toyota Series title. “It was really hard. But now that it's real, it's way better than I could ever imagine.”

The evening concluded with all seven drivers on stage together: Calderón, NASCAR Whelen Euro Series champion Anthony Kumpen, NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 champion LP Dumoulin, NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion Doug Coby, NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour champion Andy Seuss, NASCAR K&N Pro Series West champion Greg Pursley, and NASCAR K&N Pro Series East champion Ben Rhodes. more info..

Seuss To Celebrate Southern Modified Title

New Hampshire Native Scores First NASCAR Championship

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Dec. 3, 2014)  — There is an old saying ‘Good things eventually come to good people' and that is appropriate for this year's NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour champion Andy Seuss.

It has been a long road for the 27 year-old Hampstead, New Hampshire, native. He clinched the title in his 84 th career tour start which is the most by any of the six champions to win in the 10-year history of the southern tour.

His parents, Steve and Bobbi – where at least one of them has made it to every one of his starts, logging in over 175,000 miles in the process – brought him down South in 2006. He made four starts in each of his first two seasons, picking up his first win in only his fifth start at Nashville (Fairgrounds) Speedway. more info..

NASCAR Statement from George Silbermann, NASCAR Vice President, Regional and Touring Series, Regarding UNOH Battle At The Beach

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Nov. 26, 2014) – “The UNOH Battle at the Beach provided NASCAR's stars of tomorrow an excellent opportunity to participate at The World Center of Racing, but it isn't feasible to continue the event given the progress with the DAYTONA Rising project. Fortunately, nearby New Smyrna Speedway is excited to bring the K&N Pro Series East back for the season opener again this year in addition to its week-long slate of NASCAR Whelen All-American Series action; NASCAR fans will still have plenty of opportunities to see exciting short-track action in the Daytona area again this February.”

Burt Myers Captures Koma Unwind Championship at Myrtle Beach Speedway

Zach Brewer Gets Second Win Of Season

(Myrtle Beach-11/22/14)Nineteen KOMA Unwind Modified Madness Series drivers all trying to go as slow as possible for the majority of its 125 laps, Zach Brewer showed the speed necessary to go to victory lane when he needed it.

While Spencer Davis and Burt Myers dominated most of the tire-conservation endurance test at Myrtle Beach Speedway in South Carolina, Brewer made the most of his fresh tires late in the “Gobble Til Ya Wobble 125? Saturday night.  Brewer rocketed past Myers, who settled for not pitting for fresh tires late in the race, on lap 88 and never looked back for his second KOMA Series victory of the 2014 season.

BURT MYERS CLAIMS “FALL BRAWL 125” WIN AT ORANGE COUNTY

Spencer Davis has Dominate Car, but Cut Tire Cost Him Winchance for win

(10-25-2014 Rougemont, NC): The “Fall Brawl 125” for the KOMA Unwind Modified Madness Series changed from a brawl into a battle for Burt Myers Saturday night as he had to battle from deep in the pack after a long caution period pit stop in the return to Orange County Speedway for the first time in six years to one of the best crowds of the season at the super-fast 3/8 mile track.

Myers qualified his Modified on the pole for the event followed by his brother Jason, Spencer Davis and Tim Brown but it was no walk-in-the-park for the win.

B. Myers grabbed the point at the start and Davis slipped into second on the opening lap and hounded Myers for a couple more laps before a power move put the Dawsonville, GA driver in the lead for the next 63.

That reign came to an end on lap 66 when someone dumped a water bottle in the turn four groove bringing out the second caution period of the night. Most of the front running teams headed to pit road under the caution period for a fresh Hoosier tire and adjustments to their cars. Most were quick stops but B. Myers stayed on pit road for some extra adjustments as well as his tire change. Results

David Riggs Passes Away

A Car Owner, A Friend, an A True Champion

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – David Riggs, the patriarch of Riggs Racing, one of the most successful teams in the history of the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour, passed away last night after a long battle with cancer.

Riggs got his start in modified racing in 1962 fielding cars in events for over four decades. 

He was also an inaugural team owner when the tour began operation in 2005 and along with his son Jeff, won the 2005 and 2006 championships with driver Junior Miller.

In 2008 David Riggs put a young Andy Seuss behind the wheel full-time and proceeded to win seven races with the Hampstead, New Hampshire native.

Riggs quit racing full-time after 2010, when Jeff died unexpectedly in the offseason. Seuss continued using some of Riggs'cars after teaming up with his current owner Eddie Harvey in 2011.

Riggs also fielded cars in the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour for drivers such as Jamie Tomaino, Tony Jankowiak, and Tim Arre, and won the prestigious modified race at Martinsville Speedway with Johnny Bryant in 1985.

“David Riggs and his entire family helped get the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour moving forward and their dedication to the series is appreciated,” said Brad Moran, managing director of NASCAR Touring Series. “On behalf of everyone at NASCAR we send our condolences to his wife Margaret and the entire Riggs family.”
